The Big Book Of Space (World Distributors Ltd 1956)


'Only six hours to spend on the moon, and so much to do!' I spent six hours book-hunting in Brighton recently but didn't find much apart from this, unearthed in a dusty basement and mine for 20p. The illustrator isn't credited and although the style is simple that's what's so great about it, that and the colours, of course. We have lift off!

  1. I love those illustrations - thanks for sharing. I also think it's incredibly difficult to illustrate so simply. I nearly always end up overworking stuff and my ambition, for some time now, has been to be able to pare stuff right back effectively. Always harder than I think!
